"This is the biggest win at SIU since the 1967 NIT win over Marquette," Herrin said. "It may not carry the same magnitude, but for us, as we try to build our program back up, it's just as important.

By we, I don't mean his colleagues and friends but his public, who knew him only by the way he was on stage. Joseph Duell - handsome, reliable, no great virtuoso but a pillar of the company, and with the nicest smile. Yes, we did know him.

"Maybe my offensive production is not there, so it's kind of tough to put me on the team.

The casket was supposed to hold the remains of 70-year-old George H. Fais, but shortly before his viewing was to begin, grieving family members discovered that the body in the coffin was not their beloved relative's. The body, in fact, turned out to be that of Andre A. Lazell, another 70-year-old North Jersey man who had died within 20 minutes of Fais on Dec. 18 at Englewood Hospital and Medical Center in Bergen County. An apparent mixup at the hospital morgue resulted in a mistagging of the bodies, which ended up being sent to the wrong funeral homes, according to lawyer Albert L. Cohn, who represents Fais' sister, Dolores Wyka, also of North Jersey.

Seneca's other score before intermission came on a bang-bang play that saw Tom Coyne send the ball to Connor Gimbel, whose header was knocked home by Kent Dimmig.
